Why It Doesn't Matter: If you're hungover and in dire need of some greasy, deep-fried goodness to get your mind off your headache, the ChipShop is your filthy medicine. "Better fried" is probably a motto somewhere. The standard battered cod and chips can't be beat, but you can also get shrimp, scallops, sausage, and pizza-all deep-fried too. They've got a lengthy English menu, with the pies and bangers you'd expect. Be sure to save room in your guts for deep-fried Twinkies. Good for a hangover, also good for eating while on the way to a hangover.
